My archontophoenix alexandrae threw this spear about two years ago. It is the stunted leaf on the left side of the tree. It's been a battle ever since. Slow growing until this growing season. The palm has thrown three nice healthy looking spears in last three months. The palm is about 8 years old. Is this frizzle top? Or could this be some type of viral infection the palm had. The palm was planted as a seedling.
I am unable to identify this Sabal. The seeds are super tiny even smaller than W. filifera.
It is very cold hardy as the recent snow storm in Austin with temperatures down to the upper single digits did not have even the slightest hint of damage while most other sabal (except for minor) got significant foliar damage, the Mediterranean fan palms got defoliated and some were killed and even some Trachycarpus fortunei sustained damage.
The pictures below were taken exactly one year apart, so you can see the growth rate.
I'm trying to figure out what I have here, 2 young palms but maybe enough features now to narrow it down. Any ideas?
Seedling #1 - Very lush green, aggressive root system, fast grower, looking like a Phoenix (maybe Canary or long shot rupicola) or I could be way off.
Seedling #2 - Green with blue hue, moderate grower that seems to be getting a little faster, originally thought blue minor but it's been growing an above grown trunk.
Hi, hope everybody had a great weekend. Can anyone help me ID this palm, if I'm not mistaken it's a date palm but I don't know which one specifically. As you can see it sprouted a lot of seedlings of which I have luckily potted a few.
Hello all, glad to have found this forum, already have learned a bunch.
I was looking for help identifying a set of palm trees on my property, one appears to be thriving and the other is struggling.
They were placed in the ground around the same time about 9 months ago. The struggling one started out with virtually no visible fronds/leafs and after about 5 months some growth finally started, but in the 4 months after it has only reached the point you see in the attached picture. I'm wondering if I can expect that the struggling palm will eventually recover from this state and start growing like the other one. Any advice is welcome.
